Our Mission is to serve

HART is dedicated to alleviating poverty and injustice in Eastern Europe by working alongside local Christian leaders, organizations and churches – giving them the tools to build a better world for themselves, their communities and their countries.

Our goal for Eastern Europe:

To empower the Nationals in Eastern Europe to rise up and
respond to the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of their own communities.

Our goal for North America:

To inspire and provide opportunities for people in North America to get involved and truly make a difference in this world.


This is what we believe in, our code of conduct, guiding values,

our true north. These principles dictate how we measure ourselves and
how we make decisions.

WE BELIEVE: The Bible gives us a picture of a God who cares about the poor in this world.
When we explore the Bible’s teachings about God’s concern for the poor, we discover that we belong to a compassionate Kingdom, one wide enough to take in all the lost, oppressed, haggard, hungry, homeless and dispossessed.

WE BELIEVE: Compassion and giving must be done wisely.

Compassion and
giving must be
done wisely…
Ensuring the
beneficiaries of our
compassion flourish

WE BELIEVE: GOOD intentions + good strategies = success.
Good intentions devoid of proper strategies will not lead to success and sustainability.

WE BELIEVE: In partnerships with Nationals.
One of the keys to ensuring that our compassion is wise and benefits others is to enter into long-term partnerships, rather than temporary quick fixes.

WE BELIEVE: In self-sufficiency/sustainability.
The ultimate goal for our National partners is self-sufficiency. We encourage and assist them to become independent and self-reliant. We strongly believe in the principle: “never do for others what they can do for themselves.
